Oonaballoona from Kalkatroona: A sewing star of celestial proportion. One of those folks who are able to radiate warmth and energy using just thought and text and screen. The link that laid me at the feet of O from K was The Sewcialists who have declared July 2014 as Oonapalooza Time. Here’s their First Roundup. Cool hey?
What did I make that could possibly reflect even a tiny proportion of Oonaballoona’s infectious joie de vivre?
I made this jersey dress (#114) from Burda Style 02/2013. Which I’ve had a bash at before. It’s fashioned in a multicoloured mosaic print from Stone Fabrics. Boy is this fabric bright. Your husband musing ‘that’s a bit bright’ kind of bright. Tennis ball bright.
Hi-Vis jacket bright. I can just about carry it off.
Whilst I love the draped front I’m not sure that I’d do battle with this particular pattern again. There was a point during construction where I thought that the only way that that droopy drape would stay put was if I staple-gunned it to my sternum. Thankfully, after some experimental hacking, tinkering and top-stitching I was able to PUT AWAY the staple-gun. Whew!
How about you, will you dip your toe into the #Oonapalooza pool?
